A Late (With Good Reason) Me and Mine: June 2015

I really love joining in each month with the Me and Mine link up that the lovely Lucy from Dear Beautiful created. Capturing a family photograph to represent our month to then share here on my blog has become one of my favourite things to do. I love being able to not only look back on what we were doing, how we felt, what we looked like but also to see how much we've changed, how we've grown.

Dear Logan; Welcome to the World

Dear my darling little boy Logan,

You're here, you're finally here. I've thought and dreamt about you for so long, far longer than the nine months that I carried you inside of my body for. You're my little boy, my second Son. I'm a Mum of two, of two beautiful, healthy little boys. I've made and had two children with the love of my life - your Daddy. What more could I possibly want?!

A Review of the Vax Floormate Cordless Hard Floor Cleaner

Maybe it's the virgo in me - the perfectionist, that just loves things to be neat, tidy and clean or maybe it's just part of my build-up. But there's something that triggers a little rush of child-like excitement whenever I get a new cleaning toy or gadget to play with. And so when Vax sent me their new and shiny cordless hard floor cleaner, I did feel a little like Christmas may have arrived early for me.

Overdue.. Or Perhaps Not...

40 weeks pregnant, due date, overdue, 40+5 weeks

Well I'm now 40 weeks and 5 days pregnant with no sign at all of my little boy - I just never expected that I would go over.. this little guy engaged weeks ago and I had signs of labour ever since. I'd always been adamant that I'd see him before the 40 week mark.

My Top 5 Non-Essential, But Oh-So-Worth-It Nursery Recommendations

Designing your little one's first bedroom is such an exciting time, I had an absolute blast seeing all of mine and Adams ideas come together for Ethans bedroom when we did it. There are so many great ideas and piece of inspiration out there these days, especially on websites like Pinterest- which I was glued to at the time that we designed Ethans nursery. 

But once you've got all the essentials like the wallpaper, the cot and everything else such as the flooring (carpeted flooring works very well for childrens bedrooms and places like Carpetright have an excellent choice of family-friendly choices) in and ready, what about the little touches? The things you won't absolutely have to have for your little ones room, but are so worth having if you are able to make the pennies and the room space stretch..

Here, I share my top 5 non-essential, but oh-so-worth-it nursery recommendations..
